Because of the issues we had with the official Minecraft logins this weekend, we decided to do another Double Coins Weekend early october! Why not next weekend ? Well because the login issue might not be fixed by then, so to make sure the next DCW works, we will wait a few weeks and see how it goes! Also, instead of ending the DCW at midnight today, we are going to extend it by 8 hours. The DCW weekend will end on Monday 8:00 AM US Eastern Time.
On a bright note, we hit 11720 players online right before the login crashed! Breaking the our old world record of 11550! Thank you for playing and hopefully next time we won't have any issues
Do you guys like events like this on the server ? Let me know in the comments and I'll consider making more!

UPDATE #4 Minecraft logins/sessions are DOWN! Because of the current issues with the official Minecraft Login/Session servers, we are going to have another Double Coins Weekend in early october. A date will be announced within the next few days. Thank you.
Our maintenance is almost over! Sorry for the delay we had a bunch of issues and bad lucks along the way. It started up with a severe security issue regarding one of our former employee, then we had to wait on the Datacenter to change our hard drives and re-install everything. What we had to do was not simple, basically we redid our whole network, over 45 dedicated servers (around 800+ servers), in less than 24 hours.
UPDATE #3: ETA Changed, we ran into issues, can't give an ETA at the moment.
UPDATE #4: Working on one specific issue then we can move on to testing stuff.
UPDATE #5: Fixed the nasty bug! Can move on to easy things, might give a real ETA soon.
UPDATE#6: Making good progress, staff testing right now.
UPDATE #7: Now testing with VIPs while we fix stuff, then we go public in a few hours. IP: MC.HYPIXEL.NET
Right now we are finalizing the last details of our network to make sure it's stable and making VampireZ public.
Sorry this is taking so long, this is not within our control. I could point fingers for this incident but I would rather not.
This maintenance had to be done one day or another, now that it's almost over we can't wait to get back in making new games and updating the current ones. We also have 2 new developers to speed things up!
If you have questions, feel free to ask them in the comments.
We do not have a specific ETA, but hopefully it will be back up and running today (EST).
